    I never really buy souviners. I keep ticket stubs and pamphlets for places and throw it all in a box that I go through from time to time.

      I wish I could do that, saves me a lot of extra luggage :) Unfortunately I’m a souvenirs-slave. And I take all the tickets and brochures with me as well, come to think of it, ahhw!

    I always buy magnets. I have quite a few now. Although some are here with me in China, some are in boxes in NL…
    I really like your idea of the boxes!
    Lately I have been buying cloth & posters which I can frame.

      I like magnets too, they’re on the fridge :) Cloth is a great idea too! Would be great to make pillow cases from fabrics gathered all around the world. Good luck in China!

    I look for aprons that speak of where I have traveled….and I actually use them!

    You can never have enough cuddly toys, I think! My mother-in-law always gets stuffed animals from all around the world and keeps them in the toilet, haha

    Thanks for the nice comment Julie. I know what you mean, I always take postcards and art too, but I need a frame-rotating system for displaying it all (and I haven’t even seen most of the world yet!). The boxes really control my habit of buying everything on a trip, which makes my boyfriend really happy too :)

    Thanks Linda, I also love the way they all look together. I’ve got two more of India and Nepal, will post when I’m back home in the next weeks.
